How do you improve on perfection? Originally built for the U.S. military, our flagship military-spec Aviator is modified to include a sweat bar for added comfort and a distinguished look.
Our flagship Aviator has been standard-issue to the U.S. military since 1982. With careful attention to detail, from unique bayonet temples designed to fit comfortably under headgear to stay-snug screws, it has set the standard for world-class quality. Battle tested and suitable for the most demanding situations (or just to lie on the beach), our Aviator is worn by U.S. military pilots, tastemakers, and those who demand the best.

Built To Military Standards
We wanted to make a difference. Leave a mark. Be proud of something. So in 1978, we joined forces with the U.S. military to produce the HGU-4/P Aviator for fighter pilots. Each Aviator is built to strict guidelines of MIL-S-25948 standards, a 20-page document detailing the most complex manufacturing specs around.
Guaranteed for a lifetime. Or two.
Built to a higher standard using the world’s finest materials, we stand by each pair of frames we make. So much so, that we offer a lifetime warranty. Take them with you around the world, and back again.
23K Gold and Other Premium Metals
The same precious metal finishes found on the world’s finest timepieces are layered on at up to 5x the industry standard.
Handmade and Detail-Driven
It takes our craftspeople over 6 weeks to build a single pair of Randolph glasses.
More than 200 steps go into making each frame—and most of these steps? –
Done by hand.
Hand-cut and bent to flawlessly form each component.
The bridge, hinges and other components are soldered by hand.
Porcelain and ceramic granules polish each frame to absolute perfection.
Signature Bayonet Temples Fit for Pilots,
Designed for Total Comfort
Our Iconic Bayonet temples were designed to slide easily under pilot headsets, helmets and other headgear. Which means pure comfort and ease. We also calculate the exact angle of the bend on the Skull temple to prevent headaches that may sometimes occur from undue temple pressure.
TRANSPORT IN STYLE
All frames come with a leather case and a microfiber cleaning cloth that doubles as a pouch.
